Military Voting2022-10-16T12:43:36+00:00

One in six U.S. military voters didn’t vote in 2018 because their absentee ballot arrived late or not at all, according to the Federal Voting Assistance Program.

Protect Military Votes is a project of the American Constitutional Rights Union designed to encourage military voting and ensure all votes cast by members of the United States military and their family members are counted—and honored.

The mission of Protect Military Votes, a project of American Constitutional Rights Union, is to protect the votes of those protecting us.

There have been numerous cases of military ballots mishandled by local election officials, and we believe these votes should be honored with the highest level of efficiency and integrity.

The goal of Protect Military Votes is to:

  • Increase voting participation rates of military members and their families by educating them about voting rights, processes and deadlines.
  • Provide a channel for military members to report concerns or problems in the handling of their ballots
  • Identify any local or state election officials not adhering to military ballot regulations
  • Take action in cases of military ballot tampering or mishandling

Pro Tips for Poll Workers

Engage with Groups2022-09-23T19:18:07+00:00

If you are stationed outside the polling location during early voting or election day, engage in conversations with groups being dropped off to vote.  Let them know you are happy they are there to vote, ensure they have what they need to vote successfully.  Your conversations can help ensure they are exercising their right to vote of their own free will.

Watch… and Report2022-09-23T19:17:15+00:00

Engage in “mindful watching.”  If you see someone who appears to be coerced into voting, call the vote fraud hotline.
